Att Diana Hamilton - Another point I meant to make was people submit films, either their own or taken from another source and put them on YouTube. They also add music of their own choice to make the clip more interesting to watch. I think what I do, and others do, with vintage film is no different but if anyone complains I will apologize and stop doing it.

Personally, I wouldn't go by what the general Youtube user is doing as a best-practices guideline. Here is an entertaining look about what you *can* do with other people's media:

Sadly my media player wont play it. I like a lot of what is put on Youtube. Boxing, funny stuff and of course anything vintage. There is some bad stuff but I try to avoid it. If I find things I think others may be interested in I share it with them. As for using other peoples media, if its public domain then nobody has an absolute claim to ownership and it can therefore be shared with others for them to enjoy. By the way have you seen my post on Horatio Nelson. If you are as clever as I think you are, you may just understand the connection. Just a bit of fun.
